It is learned from the relevant aspects that the current development of the foreign instrument industry presents the following characteristics:
I. New technology is widely used
Currently, technologies such as electronic design automation (EDA), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), computer-aided testing (CAT), digital signal processing (DSP), application specific integrated circuits (ASIC), and surface-mount technology (SMT) are commonly used.
Product structure changes
While attaching importance to the development of high-end instruments , we also focus on the development and production of high-tech and large-scale and wide-range products.
Pay attention to system integration, not only focusing on single machine, but also focusing on system and product softening. With the CPU of various instruments and digitalization, huge manpower and financial resources have been invested in the software. The future instruments are summarized into a simple formula: "instrument = AD / DA + CPU + software". The AD chip converts the analog signal into a digital signal, and then outputs it through DA after processing and conversion by software.
Changes in product development guidelines
From technology-driven to market-driven, from blind pursuit of high precision to "just right." The criteria for developing a successful product are: users have clear needs; they can be put on the market with the shortest development time; functions and performance must be just right; another change in product development guidelines is to shrink direction and focus on advantages.
Fourth, focus on professional production instead of large and comprehensive
The production process uses an automatic test system. At present, many GP-IB instruments are used to set up automatic test systems and large test cabinets on the production line to quickly perform automatic tests, statistics, analysis, and print out the results.
